Annual Report

Activities and Results - Programmes and Projects


The DFG’s annual report provides a comprehensive 300-page overview of the organisation’s news and funding activities. It illustrates the variety of DFG-funded research and infrastructure by showcasing examples from the more than 31,000 projects which received almost €3 billion in funding in 2016. A detailed statistics section presents the most important facts and figures.

The annual report, which was presented at the DFG’s General Assembly on 5 July 2017, clearly shows that a well-functioning, self-governing research system is based on the involvement and dedication of many people, such as reviewers, committee members and Head Office staff.
